Free Video Downloader allows you to download videos of all known formats: mp4, webm, mpeg, ogg, etc. The extension also allows you to download HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) videos. HLS video is saved to your computer in a file with the .ts extension, which you can later view in any media player. In the new version, the extension can download streaming MPEG-DASH video and combine audio and video into one file.

The extension is very easy to use. First, you need to open the page with the desired video and start playing it. Then click on the extension icon in your browser and in the window that appears, select the video file you need. Click download in a few seconds you will start downloading the video to your computer.

The extension is convenient to use for downloading movies when you are going on long trips or travels. Download your favorite stories from Instagram, videos from TikTok. Also all kinds of videos for preparing presentations. Free Video Downloader does not have the ability to download YouTube videos as YouTube's privacy policy prohibits this.
Risk impact

Free Video Downloader requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Free Video Downloader if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Free Video Downloader has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

It used to be quite handy before it starting redirecting to and failing to do anything at all. It's useless now.
